Classic superyacht

You can keep you modern superyachts - this would be the one for me.

http://www.savarona.info/savarona_en/

To give you an idea of it's size the Turkish bath alone is 260 tons of marble - yes tons - that's heavier than the biggest Sunseeker ever built the 37m trideck - and that's just the bath!!!

A bargain to charter - only 300,000 a week.......

Yep! I could live on that. Pretty exclusive though, I can't even access the web site - it refuses to let my Int. Ex. look at it. Perhaps they know my cheque might bounce.

I took the bath info from the official site - not that one.

http://www.mysavarona.com/description.php

"A large swimming pool, two Jacuzzis, two seperate saunas and steam rooms, a fitness center and a floor heated turkish bath built from 260 tons of carved marble are available for your pleasure."

Considering the size, 650lt/hr @15knts seems quite frugal

Displacement hulls use far less power than planing ones. A Sunseeker 120' yacht has about the same hp as the 500' Savarona - so they use about the same amount of fuel.

comparing the Savarona to a 37m trideck is a bit like comparing the Queen with Victoria Beckham...?!

Funnily enough I said exactly the same to my brother - you could easily imagine inviting the Queen aboard the Savarona but Sunseekers are definitely more footballers wives!!!

I love Sunseekers and I am very proud of them being British but they aren't exactly elegant - neither are most of the other modern super yachts.
